§ 22. Mr. KENNEDY
asked the Minister of Labour whether any inquiry has been held into the allegation that a certain firm of clothiers, having several branches in London, were paying wages less than those fixed by the appropriate Trade Board; and, if not, whether the delay in dealing with the firm in question is due to the Ministry of Labour being understaffed?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
Inquiry in the case to which I understand my hon. Friend refers has now been made, and consequential action is being taken.
